Types of Inspections

Pre-purchase inspections of existing homes

This inspection is usually ordered by a purchaser and is for an existing home. Typically performed after a contract is signed. In Alabama, the buyer has anywhere from 7 to 10 days to have the inspection completed.

New construction home inspections

These inspections are performed on new homes that have just been completed, usually after the utilities have been turned on and the HVAC is working.

New home warranty inspections

New home/builders’ warranties usually expire after 12 months. Many individuals contract for a home inspection prior to expiration so they can take advantage of the builder’s warranty.

Pre-market inspections

This inspection is usually ordered by the seller. This gives the seller the opportunity to address any problems prior to listing the property for sale.

Partial inspections

An inspection of a part of the home. For example, roof, crawlspace, attic, etc. These are for the purpose of addressing any area that may be of particular concern to the individual. Frequently used to obtain an impartial opinion of some faulty construction techniques in preparation for litigation.

Structural Inspections and Risk Assessment

This inspection is often requested and accomplished separately from the usual home inspection, but at times are done in tandem. This inspection targets and emphasizes the condition of the structural elements of the building, i.e.: foundation, footings, foundation walls, piers, floor joists, wall framing, attic and roof framing and is used by owners to guide them and their contractors in the repair of the building. It is frequently used as a legal document by the owners attorney.
